Question about RCA D61W20 61" Rear Projection Television
Hi i have a power problem. You see when i am watching my tv it runs fine
but when i shut it off for an hour or longer it wont turn back on
..well it does but i have to keep hitting the power button till it
turns on .if i hold the power button it blinks 5 times then blinks 1
more time then nothing..(the light on the power button not the screen
)..eventually it does start up just takes a while .and i hear a ticking
noise to the right side of the tv when it is trying to start up .If you
just push the power button normally ..it does a series of trying to
start up 3 times then doesn't do anything till you hit the button again
(and you have to wait about 1 minute before it will accept the new button press).If you sit there and
keep hitting the button eventually it goes through its power startup
procedure, but it can take 35-55 minutes.it will finally start up the
screen ..it has been so frustrating that i have simply left the tv on 24/7 and just change to a blank signal source when it's not in use. Also, when the TV finally starts up, the display is very wavy for the first 30 seconds or so before it settles down.
I don't live in the US, and the repair places I have checked (I live in Trinidad) all say that they will need to get the unit in hand, and then diagnose the problem then order the parts. This will mean that I will be without a TV for like a month (not an option).
I am an electrical engineer, so I should be able to replace any part that is causing the problem myself. However I need to know what part is causing the issue, so that I can order it. Even if I get it fixed professionally, having the part in hand before I carry it in will let me get my TV back way faster.
Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
Start here, because you will connect with plenty of information about your tv.
Let me know if this helps.
